Mr Olivier Amar says, “More and more of my patients asked me for a skin rejuvenating treatment that was fast, discreet and, above all, natural. I developed my exclusive Express PRP technique for busy patients who want the refreshed, glowing look you would expect after a good holiday.”
WHAT IS PRP EXPRESS?
PRP, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, is a totally natural, non-surgical treatment that uses the healing power of your own blood to regenerate your skin and encourage new collagen.
PRP treatment boosts the skin’s radiance and luminosity, improves texture and reduces the visible signs of ageing.
Traditionally, PRP treatments involve many injections into the face. Mr Olivier Amar created Express PRP to give his patients all the skin-brightening, rejuvenating benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma but in less time, with less redness and less downtime than other types of PRP, and with minimal discomfort.
Mr Olivier Amar’s innovative, 30-minute treatment uses a cannula to distribute the PRP under the skin, meaning you only need experience four tiny pin-prick punctures. Your skin will appear far less traumatised than in traditional PRP treatments and because it uses your own blood, an Express PRP treatment is entirely non-toxic, hypoallergenic and considered extremely safe.
WHY CONSIDER EXPRESS PRP?
Express PRP is ideal for anyone whose skin appears tired, dull and lacklustre.
The treatment stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and natural hyaluronic acid to soften lines and wrinkles.
Skin will feel more hydrated, firmer and more elastic.
Express PRP is suitable for men and women. It is perfect for brightening the skin before a special occasion or as a beauty tonic for an all year-round glow. Many patients say they need to use less makeup and feel more confident about their skin after treatment.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
During an Express PRP treatment, you will first have a small amount of blood – 15mls – taken from your arm just as you would in a blood test. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge for five minutes to separate the red blood cells from the clear liquid called plasma and the platelets.
Platelets play a vital role in regenerating our skin, releasing growth factors that work to heal damaged or ageing tissues, including our skin cells.
Your face will be cleaned, and four tiny punctures made to allow the insertion of a flexible, blunt-ended cannula to gently distribute the platelet rich plasma under the skin of the cheeks and around the mouth.
The skin is then massaged to encourage the healing plasma to spread under the skin.
You may notice improvements in skin texture after a few days, but it can take up to three weeks to appreciate the full results, including glow, hydration and a rested appearance.
Because Mr Olivier Amar’s Express PRP involves less disruption to your skin than traditional injections, you will be free to combine it with other treatments such as peels and laser procedures.
While you should see visible improvements after a single Express PRP treatment, for optimum, longer-lasting results, Mr Olivier Amar recommends two to three sessions, four to six weeks apart, plus a further treatment after eight months.
Mr Olivier Amar’s Express PRP treatment uses the advanced, safe and rapid Arthrex ACP Double-Syringe system
WHAT ARE THE ALTERNATIVES?
It is important to understand that Express PRP rejuvenates and brightens skin, but it does not add volume. If are looking for a filler-type treatment which uses your own natural tissue to restore youthful facial volume while also improving the tone and texture of your skin, Mr Olivier Amar offers facial rejuvenation using your own fat, a procedure called Super Enriched Fat Transfer with SVF Stem Cells
For more intensive skin rejuvenation or are looking for a PRP treatment to help with thinning hair, then you may wish to consider Biotherapy PRP.
